All widgets will require you to choose a type of incoming data to render.
Static - data will be loaded as is and is not changed unless code is written for it to listen and force changes.
Dynamic - The datasource is added and data gets updated as changes are made in the datasource. This will appear in ‘Content’ as ‘Datasources’.
The parser for the widget can be edited in this section. Datasources can also be added.
Editing the Parser
To edit the parser, click on ‘Edit’ next to the data type.
The parser includes:
- ‘Debug’ button - this is to debug your parser
- ‘Save’ button - save changes you make to your parser. Do not close the parser without saving your changes.
- ‘Discard Changes’ button - restores parser to its default state.
To go back to the widget editing page, click on the name of the widget.
It appears the same as the data parser.
